On this date...

...1,681 years ago, the First Council of Nicaea opened.

It was at this council where Emperor Constantine suppressed the Feminine Mystique form of Christianity in favor of the Pauline version. Or something. I haven't read THAT BOOK THAT SHALL REMAIN NAMELESS, so I don't know all the pseudo-historical/quasi-fictional details.

IN REALITY, the Council was called to do something about Arianism and a few other things as well. One of the end results was the Nicene Creed in its earliest form.
